My pairs are fighting


My Pair have egg 10 days ago. They were very co-operative to each other and they sit on egg one after another. But from today morning they are fighting to sit on egg. Specially the Cock is more aggressive.

What I can do now.

Im sure they will work it out, if they are a young pair and this is their first eggs to incubate you may want to use fake ones , untill they seem to sit those well then let them hatch their real ones after that.

Do u have other birds around them loose? If so he might be fighting her to maintain his territory (her). I found that some birds (on eggs) prefer to stay covered throughout the day especially if there are other birds in the loft flying around.

When my birds fight there mated pair I usually just cover there cage and they settle down.

A devoted cock bird is not a bad thing, the problem I would worry about is when he fights for the nest eggs can get broken or chicks can get harmed, but he may settle down before the hatch. You could give fake eggs for now and see how the pair do with those for a few clutches, if he settles down and allows her to sit those then let them hatch their real ones at that point.

I agree with spirit wings. I wouldn't worry so much about him hogging the nest. He will let up in time. I worry more when the cock won't take his turn on the nest. She will back off for now and let him sit. Nothing else much you can do.

Buy them each a little pair of boxing gloves and invite friends over with a $10 cover charge to watch fight.

Don't understand what it is you need help with. It takes 18 days or so for them to hatch.
